ROMANIAN Fugitive Arrested By Mijas Guardia Civil after hiding out using a false identity
Guardia Civil officers in the Malaga province of Mijas have arrested a 32-year-old Romanian man, who is a fugitive, wanted by the Romanian law enforcement authorities, as well as Interpol, and found to be hiding out in the town, using a false identity.
The suspect had been identified by Local Police officers in the Costa del Sol resort of Benalmádena one month ago, when he was discovered in a squat, along with six other Romanian nationals, where, according to sources, he had allegedly jumped out of a window after the officers had realised that he had shown them fake documentation, and avoided arrest on that occasion.
Last Sunday 6, one month after the squat incident in Benalmádena, the suspect was spotted again by Guardia Civil officers in Mijas, after they located him in an urbanisation in the town, where it would seem he had been lying low, and after identifying him he was promptly arrested based on the international search warrant out in his name, according to diariosur.es.
He will now be handed over to the National Court, which will process his extradition to Poland, where he had been sentenced to four years in prison for drug trafficking, and reportedly, in his file that was placed on the citizen collaboration section of the Polish National Police website, the man is described as a ‘repeat offender’ in drug matters, and that his four-year sentence had been handed down issued on the basis of ‘various crimes’.
